Abstract: In this note we show that no solution to coalition formation games can satisfy a set of axioms that we propose as reasonable. Our result points out that �solutions� to the coalition formation cannot be interpreted as predictions of what would be �resting points� for a game in the way stable coalition structures are usually interpreted.
